I don’t know when it happened, but slowly over the past month or so I allowed myself to set my mind on things on earth. I was totally out of sync. Obviously, there was a lot of grace there because I was the only person who truly knew it. I began to get warnings from the Holy Spirit and this was happening when I was out amongst other people. I would hear the words: “Be quiet…do not speak!”
If it doesn’t make sense to you…you are not alone. I didn’t get it yet I know what I heard. I would be quiet for a while and then when I thought it was “safe”; I’d say something. Every single time…I regretted opening my mouth.
I can explain; though few would. There was a negative spirit trying to overtake me. The whole idea… began to bother me…so I decided to take some time out to seclude myself. I began to pray more, worship more, I repented, I praised and then I did something that really changed things:
I began to take Holy Communion daily asking God to reveal my weaknesses.
During the course of it all…I was setting my mind…only on the Heavenly things and an exchange took place. God gave me fresh revelation that I needed. With great humility I say that He allowed me to fast. I’ve fasted before…but this time was different. I admit that I don’t know why. But, I’ll also admit that I’m glad.
“Set your mind on things above, and not on things on the earth.” Colossians 3: 2
